The design is inspired by the traditional boathouses at the Carinthian lakes and takes the idea one step further.

The house is placed on a wooden platform, which acts as an extension of the interior.

A simple wooden house is erected on this basis.

The ground floor is conceived as a flowing space continuum and is zoned by means of room-dividing elements (steps, kitchen island, wood stove). Omitting the walls provides the area with the greatest possible sense of space.
